Title
A global network for investigating the genomic epidemiology of malaria
Published in
Nature, December 2008
DOI 10.1038/nature07632
Pubmed ID
Abstract

Large-scale studies of genomic variation could assist efforts to eliminate malaria. But there are scientific, ethical and practical challenges to carrying out such studies in developing countries, where the burden of disease is greatest. The Malaria Genomic Epidemiology Network (MalariaGEN) is now working to overcome these obstacles, using a consortial approach that brings together researchers from 21 countries.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 December 2008.
All research outputs
#744,870
of 4,681,522 outputs
Outputs from Nature
#21,813
of 38,070 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#646,346
of 3,602,719 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature
#21,175
of 37,149 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,681,522 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 84th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 38,070 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 56.7. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 3,602,719 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 37,149 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
